Salmon if you need them!
« on: April 21, 2019, 07:06:44 pm »

Took my friend and our sons for a "kids fishing session" yesterday. Headed over just south of sheepwash bay in the channel. Trolled some assorted small lures at a slow speed and had triple hook ups non stop from salmon. All decent size. Bagged out in 30mins or so. That includes multiple child tangles etc. Plenty for bait and burley for a trip early this week for proper fish.

I assume that's Aus salmon, not Atlantic.  Great fun for the kids, even littl'uns pull like billy-o.

Are you planning another gummy trip?  Let us know how you go!

Im hoping to get out tomorrow morning. Theres a good chance of tuna down south so weather permitting,  ill try for those first and then anchor up for gummy afterwards.

Plenty of snapper being caught in storm bay If you're in that area, I'd keep a look out for all the boats anchored up.

My bait and berley efforts were all in vain, no gummy at all. Plenty of poor by catch. However, on a plus point, we did get two SBT 29kg and 25kg around the friars first.

Whooo, nice!

Tuna that size are fun sport, and there should be plenty of nice tuna steaks (and some good sashimi too, if you treated it nicely).  Well done!
